  1. Excellent sounding Dac and great value at asking price. GLWTS.
  2. That reeded finish reminds me of my kappa 9's. Beaut finish. GLWTS.
  3. Yep. Excellent cable providing great tonal balance and clarity. Mine has seen off a few well regarded cables and are keepers. GLWTS.
  4. Have spent some enjoyable hours enjoying these amps with @deanB. These tubes have finesse and more than enough power when needed. I reckon you'll miss those glowing toobs mate.
  5. Try Chamila at RF Waves. Also usually busy but worth touching base.
  6. Definitely. I have never listened to a bad system or sound - the music is just different. So long as you end up tapping your toes at your preferred tunes then job done. I scratch my itches with several different pieces - 3 preamps, 4 amps and 3 pairs of speakers. Modest pieces all but when I get the itch I can swap pieces and enjoy the music again with a slight variation each time. Never bad. Just different. Addictive - oh yes!
  7. I have received a few inquiries if this is the same amp sold by LWA in February for $995. The answer is NO. I purchased the amp from LWA in middle of last year for a little under the asking price of $2500. I'm more than happy for you to contact Len at LWA to verify. I will say I was pretty upset when I saw the price in February and sent email to LWA expressing my grief. The apologetic response was that the listed price should have been for a MF CD player but as listed at the price they wouldn't renege on the deal in hand (understandable). So if LWA will kick in $1000 I'd be happy to pass it to a new owner for $995. (Buyer pays transport). I'm a stereo entusthiast like everyone on this site but I am not a charity nor attempting to profit from this post. As most others I'm just trying to recover some of my costs and enable others to enjoy a great amplifier.
  8. I have it matched with Vincent SA T7 and Prima Luna Prologue. The MF A5 works beautifully with both.
  9. Thanks mate. Yep. The combo with the valve preamp sounds pretty yummy.
  10. Item: Musical Fidelity A5CR power amp. Price reduced Location: Perth Price: $2100 (incl transport to mainland Australia). Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD, direct bank deposit Only Extra Info: I purchased this amplifier from LWA middle of last year to experience the big watts on offer but find I prefer the sound and tonality of valves in my setup. This amp is well reviewed and regarded and drives awkward speaker loads without breaking a sweat. I will pack in the non original double boxes and packing as sent to me from the original seller. A bonus is the size and weight to easily fit into normal stereo rack. Happy to demo at my home or can bring to local buyers to listen to in their system as it usually gives a more accurate idea of the sonic fit. Specifications: Output : Power 255 Watts per channel into 8 Ohms (24dBW), 416 Watts per channel into 4 Ohms Voltage, RMS : 45.2 Volts 20Hz to 20kHz Voltage, Peak-to-peak : 118.8 Volts Current peak-to-peak Damping factor : 200 Amps Output devices per channel : 8 Total harmonic distortion + noise: < 0.01% 20Hz to 20kHz Signal / noise ratio: < 109dB ‘A’-weighted Input sensitivity for 255 Watts into 8 Ohms Input impedance: 1.5V Channel separation: > 90dB typical Frequency response: 10Hz to 100kHz, +0, -1.5 dB Inputs: (A) 1 pair line level RCA connectors (B) 1 pair line level RCA connectors Outputs: 2 amplifier channels via 2 pairs per channel binding posts + 1 pair RCA loop output sockets Weight: 19.1kgs Dimensions: 440x 125 x 400mm Any questions please PM. Pictures and specs from original advertiser (even the price sticker is still there) and presents as new. Thanks for looking.
  11. Excellent bit of kit. Have worked wonders taming lower frequency/room interactions on my speakers. I'd imagine even better results with suspended flooring.
